A Norfolk Broads eatery is offering free food to anyone in need on Christmas Day.

Altan Celik, who owns Little Italia Pizza in Hoveton, hopes the offer will help people feel less alone during the holiday season.

People can pop in at any time between 12pm and 4pm on December 25.

They will be able to order from a menu including pizza, fried chicken, chicken burgers, beef burgers, chicken kebabs, sausages and chips.

Soft drinks are also included in the offer.

Mr Celik said: "In my country of ethnic origin, Turkey, we do a similar thing for Eid at the end of Ramadan.

"We always give back to the community and people who can't afford to live - can you imagine having no family, no money or nowhere to live and feeling sad on a special day?

"I just want to make people feel happy - it makes me happy to make people smile and invest in the community."

Mr Celik hopes people will spread the word to reach as many people as possible.

He has already had between 20 and 30 responses but aims for many more.
